Had to GS the front end again (Fell off) so I'm impatiently waiting for it to cure atm.

Also working on buggy #3 and Dakkajet.

If I end up using more warbuggies than these 3 definitely just gonna get a trukk kit and cut it down.

Finished this guy off. I'm thinking I'm gonna put him a base to help support the front forks, even tho now the GS seems pretty stable.

On to #3 and the Dakkajet!

Just a couple finished shots of my Dakkajet and friends.

Time to decide on the next project but I suspect it'll be the Lootas staring demandingly at me from my shelf. Or well, they would, if they had heads.

So this is one of my terrain pieces I'm working on atm for LOER. I am basing it loosely on an Egyptian Temple.





Here it is from both sides atm, as I have it laid out. I cut the foam columns with my new foam cutter, to get them close to circular. I'm probably keeping this layout, but I'm not 100% sure yet.

This is after I sanded the pillars to get them closer to round:



next stage is going to be refining the columns, trying to get them to look more like stone. I also started scoring them lightly where I'm going to be painting designs in. The base it self has been basecoated with a burnt umber, which I'm waiting on to dry.

So I started redoing the base, after I realized the stone simply stood out too much from the pillars stone version. It looked nice in brown, just didn't match, so I started redoing it in grey, like I did the pillars.




Here's all the pillars after their final HL of ivory white, I tried to give them a hint of a vein structure.





Mocked up the Temple again, to check out how it was all fitting together. Much happier with this version.



And I started working on the main pillar itself. It'll all be weathered afterwards, but likely mostly with paint as chipping fluid would not be ideal for pink foam.

That right there is a thing of beauty. What a beautiful army.

The terrain is looking fantastic as well, great work on the stones.

Thanks Cam!

I like to do army shots sometimes especially when I find my impetus waning a little bit. Trying to get the wherewithal to get the remaining units done this year (soon TM)

Speaking of remaining units so far I have:

30 grots
20+ nobz
6 warbikes
1 battlewagon
4 Mek Gunz (not purchased yet)
? Flash Gitz (also not purchased yet)
5-10 Lootas (under construction)
and 2 DeffDreads


That'll complete my Greentide, at least til I get a stompa and the FW units I'd really like (Grot tanks etc)

I saw the build earlier and wondered what you were going for with the square bases and the pink board, The finished result is excellent and well done. The paint completely defines the look of that model.

Thanks guys! Got a bit more hobby done (yesterday) on my Lootas:





Mek Boy & Lootas - working on their metals atm, their flesh is done. Bases are under consideration (will be ocean again tho).

And I actually am not currently hobbying (Gasp) because I'm playing a small game with my Son (finally!!) - really our first 8th ed game. Yes it's been that long.... Had to wait for him to get his DE together lol. Basically he's using the entire contents of the SC box, and I'm using 10 boyz, 1 nob, 1 painboy in a trukk, and a warbuggy (which was already blown up so not in shots).





Just playing on a small mat, so's to try to keep it quick, neither of us have psykers (well DE, Duh) but anyways, it's pretty fun! Little bit of confusion over 7th rules vs 8th but not too bad. We didn't add in anything except let's kill each other so we can try to figure out how this game works. I think he's prolly gonna win tho lol

I've decided to start visiting the blogs of other LoER contestants, so I can enjoy more than just their contest pieces. I'm only starting the 3rd page of yours, but I wanted to comment. First, what a nice collection you minis you've been making. It's not very timely, but your Luna Wolves look good.. Second, I'm really excited that you are the first person I've seen on here that uses the tops from the squeeze apple sauce and yogurt like I do

Okay, back to reading

Glad you're enjoying the blog =D I need to read the other LoER blogs more too >< sooo many ideas so little time!!
